DMBLGIT #5 2006 Winners!!

First I want to thank everyone who submitted their delicious and delightful pictures to this edition of DMBLGT. We had 41 submissions! I am so glad to have emails from each of you. It was great to meet so many nice people.

I would also like to thank, profusely, our three judges for this month’s contest. They are:

Brenda at The Culinary Fool
Bea at La Tartine Gourmande
and Kathya at .let me think I left a spot on your lovely sun.

You all did a beautiful job, thanks so much!

Judging Metrics:
Each judge (4 total) rated each pic on a scale of 1-99 with three categories. 33 for Eatability, 33 for Originality, and 33 for Aesthetics. I am going to present the top three overall winners and then the top three in each category. I will also provide a few comments as provided by the judges in the overall category and in the other categories where not repetitive. I will note the averaged score for each winning entry.

Lucullian Delights
(74 out of 99)

DMBLGIT #5 entry (35) - Favabeans with sundried tomatoes, white wine and thyme (NOT MINE)

Favabeans with sundried tomatoes, white wine and thyme

- I love all the green and wanted to rate this higher. However, my eye was drawn to the out of focus background instead of to the in focus bean. I had to force myself to look at the bean. I think a slightly different crop (through the bean in the bowl, maybe) would help this
- Great eye-catching colour,
- Would have preferred a photo of the finished dish!!
